*RETAIL - Pittosporum tenuifolium 'County Park Dwarf'

*THIS SIZE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL NURSERY

Introduced by the United Kingdom's famed County Park Nursery, the source of many a wonderful new plant, this is a newer version of a more old fashioned cultivar, Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb'. To 4-5 ft, with a densely mounding habit and 3 in, ever-so-slightly ruffled burgundy leaves adorned with the typical deep purple flowers that are difficult to see amid the foliage but can certainly be found by the fragrance of carnations in early to mid spring.  Pittosporum tenuifolium 'County Park Dwarf' has proven several degrees hardier to frost than P. t 'Tom Thumb' and has maintained, at least so far, a somewhat more compact habit in our garden. Regular water; leanish soil; bright light for best color. Fabulous container plant. Frost hardy in upper USDA zone 7 if protected from freezing winds.
